HomeBig Bear Lake Things To DoMeditation and Outdoor Yoga in Big Bear

The beauty of a lakefront village, fresh mountain air, and a slower pace than a big city might be just what you and your loved ones are looking for on the next getaway. It’s also the prime place for some re-centering relaxation, like yoga or meditation. Look no further than Big Bear, California. You’ll find plenty of serenity and calm to relax your mind and body for a refreshing stay like no other with outdoor yoga in Big Bear.

Mountain Yoga Center

Enjoy the healing and refreshing routine of yoga. The center offers classes for beginners as well as seasoned yogis looking to keep to their routine while on vacation. Choose from classes like candlelight, gentle, or restorative flow, begging yoga, or vinyasa. You can sign up online for in-person classes or virtual classes, private classes, or passes that include a single class, five classes, ten classes, or a monthly unlimited pass for those on an extended stay in Big Bear.

Outside Your Door

Step outside the door of your vacation rental provided by Big Bear Vacations and breathe in mountain air and lake calm. Many rentals offer decks, patios, or balconies with enough space to spread out for your regular Big Bear yoga routine.

Lakefront Yoga in Big Bear

Take your routine down to the shoreline of the lake. You’ll want to get up and out early to enjoy the peace and tranquility that is present before the lake gets busy with vacationers and locals out for a swim or other outdoor activity. If you’re not an early riser, try a sunset session after many people have settled in for the evening.


Yoga and meditation are forms of exercise, just like running, hiking, and biking. Start with an adrenaline pumping activity like hiking or biking through Big Bear’s mountain terrain. Once you reach your destination or the summit, take a break and relax. Take some time before heading back down to complete your daily meditation or yogain Big Bear routine. You’ll be surrounded by Big Bear’s natural features, like pine forest, giant mountain rocks, and other centers of balancing energy. When you’re done, you’ll be ready for the journey back down the mountain and for your day’s activities.

SUP Yoga

In the summer, you can combine water sports and yoga into one experience. Stand up paddleboarding is a lake activity of choice for many – it offers full body strengthening, a workout, and refining of your physical balance. Add in yoga and meditation to balance mind and spirit in the same session. Take classes led by experienced yoga instructors or rent a paddleboard and go through your own routine on the calm waters of the lake.

Snowshoeing + Yoga/Meditation

If you’re here for some winter fun, you can still get in your daily yoga and meditation. Dress for the weather, then snowshoe your way to a calm and peaceful spot. Make sure you have space to set up and a way to stay warm while you recenter yourself.

Big Bear Yoga Festival

Big Bear is one of the top spots for yoga, meditation, and relaxation. So much so, that the lakeside village hosts an annual festival. It’s more than just yoga. The two-day festival includes music, movement, health, and more. Attend a lecture on health and wellness, participate in a wide range of yoga classes and meditation sessions, or enjoy delicious healthy food. Add in hiking, other outdoor activities, plus the festival’s kids play area, vendor village, and other excitement for a can’t-miss experience.
